· Vespa Scooters

Because of their popularity, the Vespa scooter is often restored to its original beauty. For example, one man bought his first Vespa scooter back in the 1980s for a mere $60. Unfortunately, the scooter was covered with several coats of house paint, had gaudy stickers all over, the kick-start quadrant was broken, there were no emblems or trim, the electrical systems did not work, and so on. To say the least, the Vespa scooter left much to be desired.

However, a Vespa is easy to fall in love with, even when it does not look like much. For over eight years, this man put tremendous time and effort into restoring his scooter. In fact, many of his friends felt he also spent too much money. However, after a beautiful restoration job, this man and his scooter went around the world, seeing new places, making new friends, and having a wonderful time. He realized after his labors that the people from Piaggio made an incredible scooter.

Although this man had no idea where to start with the restoration of his Vespa scooter, he relied on some local talent for guidance. Their expertise and assistance helped turn an old beaten down Vespa to a brilliant looking scooter. The Vespa scooter will be stripped down to the metal frame, realigned, and then you should use a 4 + 1 metallic, step process, which would include rust preventative, primer, the main color of paint, and then a finishing clear coat. The best paint to use is Japanese Kansai paint.

Once that portion is complete, you will then re-wire and re-cable the scooter. Be sure before you assembly the engine that it is stripped, rebuilt, and tested with a burn. As you can imagine, the restoration includes a lot of work. You will be working on or looking for numerous items, just a few that include a cylinder, piston rings, fuel tap assembly, flywheel cover, clutch plates and drum, brake shoes, generator coil, points, exhaust system, gear selector, leg fender shield trim, and seals and gaskets. Once you have completed the restoration of your Vespa scooter, you will be so proud of the job and enjoy riding your Vespa even more.

If you use rebuilt parts, which will be your only choice on occasion, you need each part to be sandblasted, cleaned, and then maintained in a clean environment during the rebuild process. For the crankshaft case, transmission gears, cylinder head, steering lock, flywheel, and brake drums, try to use only top quality. You will find that in most Vespa scooter restorations, on average, 95% of the parts will need replacing. If you are considering the restoration of a Vespa, your goal will be to bring the scooter's original specifications back in line, which will require that you only the best parts and paint available.
